  1. Just had a feeling he was going to miss that one. Been pretty poor. Mendy looks particularly off the pace. Fuchs is making plenty of rash decisions too. We need something to galvanise the whole team.
  2. but he's 'back out on the grass'. I don't think he's running around on crutches
  3. That's got to be including non playing staff wages, and I'd assume bonuses as there was one recently that had us about a million down from that. To put into context, that's suggesting we'd have 30+ players on £100k a week. Reality is there's probably only 4/5 who are on anything like that so I highly doubt it's just players. Interesting where we sit in terms of followers though. Think that suggests that their is already the potential to make this one of the 'big' clubs
  4. Sounds like a load of crap to me...
  5. Bit harsh. 1st half he was one of the few to come out with some credit. But agree that second half he wasn't great but join the club on that.
  6. I adopt the Nigel Pearson mantra of neither get too up or too down but I wouldn't hold it against anybody who booed that performance. It was utterly inept and quite frankly down to a lack of desire. That's the only explanation for Southampton being able to press the ball and keep 6 players within 20 yards of the ball versus 3 of ours but still not get caught short on the overload. You excuse bad performances, you don't excuse a lack of effort and concentration. Horrible performance but will all be forgotten tomorrow and we can take immense pride in how the season has gone so far.
  7. I think the position we find ourselves in the league and cups is far better than most of us even hoped for. Everyone involved deserves immense credit for that and it's easy for us to forget that. But I have to say that was one of the most gutless performances I've seen from us in a long time. VAR, Kasper and the woodwork saved us being on the end of the scoreline that we deserved. Couldn't string 2 passes together but then decided we'd try to do that in the 95th minute. And to compound matters we didn't even have the Sunday league level knowledge to stick a centre half up top for the last 5 mins and at least try to get a goal that way. It's been a fantastic season but that was a real horror show. Got to show a big reaction from that.
  8. Excellent. Thank god you're not a medical professional; I'd be dead
  9. Sorry what? I'm not sure what aspirin will help with? And oh yes, because this forum is so spot on with everything. I said he wasn't great, same as pretty much everybody else. You want to pin that all on Chilwell that's your prerogative. And I'm totally entitled to disagree with that.
  10. Plenty? Minor strain of anything in the knee and you shouldn't weight bare. Footballers are going to be told to take extra precautions compared to a member of the general public.
  11. And so did every other single player.
  12. Yeah, should have just punted it out for a goal kick everytime with all those options he had... So many passes behind him; what do you expect him to do with that. Don't think he was great but this is such basic criticism that does nothing to take into account the context of what was happening on the pitch.
  13. Probably but we loaned out 22 year Josh Knight back to league 1 despite the rave reviews so maybe it'll be any league 1 team
  14. My Gillingham supporting mate says they might be in for him
  15. I've been playing FM for well over a decade and I'm experiencing something that's never happened before. Typically it's easy to improve year on year, if you have an understanding of CA and PA in terms of attributes (not the most fun but you can't unlearn it when you know). Meaning once I win the league one year, that's it; I'll just keep winning especially since I have a team of kids that will be way better than the year before. For context I took Tonbridge to 5 consecutive promotions which isn't too hard when you get one decent player who'll make a bit of money, and somehow sneaking into the CL in my first season. Last few days of playing, I've been on a really patchy run of form (which obviously happens). But, the strange thing are the performances in those matches. I've gone from dominating possession in every division during the 6 seasons I've played, with really good discipline to now barely able to get 40% possession and my full backs in particular, getting caught out all the time and picking up at least a booking between them. Obviously I'm glad for the challenge and whilst the losing is frustrating, it makes the success that much more. What's annoying me is that it's not like we're not quite playing to the style we've always done but somehow we seem completely incapable of even coming close. All my dynamics are well in the green too plus I've made some minor tactical adjustments like easing off tackles but even my victories are very unconvincing. It makes me think that they patched something but maybe I'm just overthinking things?
